Plan Your Legacy with Dignity

When you make a planned gift to Barrow Neurological Institute or St. Joseph's Hospital, you are supporting a future at our hospital that includes discoveries in the laboratory, medical training for young doctors and nurses, and more effective patient care. When you include Barrow or St. Joseph's in your estate plans, you are investing in a healthier future for our city, our state and the world beyond.

There are many ways to make a planned gift, and many offer benefits to you and your family. The tools and information on this website such as Gifts Anyone Can Make, Personal Calculators and the Will Planning Wizard help you choose the option that best achieves both your philanthropic and financial goals.

Tip of the Day

You're never too young to plan before you give. Consider these giving methods that fit your circumstances now and maximize your philanthropy:

  • Include Barrow Neurological Foundation/St. Joseph's Foundation as the beneficiary of a contingent bequest, which provides a gift to the Foundation if the originally designated beneficiary cannot accept it.
  • Fund a life insurance policy from your annual income rather than a transfer of capital. It builds a substantial gift that will strengthen our endowment.
  • Alternately, you may be carrying a paid-up insurance policy whose coverage your family no longer needs. A gift of the policy will provide us immediate benefits and generate an immediate tax deduction for you.
  • Create a deferred gift annuity and receive a significant tax deduction now and lifetime payments when you need them most -- after you retire. You can create a deferred annuity each year during high-earnings years from dollars you've already earmarked for retirement saving, and schedule a combined payment from the annuities starting at a date you specify.
